German children dress up for end-of-winter festival

Children of the German Slavic ethnic minority Sorben wear traditional clothes during a parade to celebrate the traditional “Ptaci Kwas” (Vogelhochzeit/marriage of the birds). The festival is held every Jan. 25, when birds thank children for feeding them during the winter and mark the season coming to an end, in Nebelschuetz, east of Dresden, Germany.
